    Manuscript Submission

    Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.


    Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.

    How to Submit

    Manuscripts should preferably be submitted in the original file format. Please follow the hyperlink “Submit online” on the right to open an e-mail to the editor and attach the files.
    If this is not possible, one printout of the manuscript must be submitted to the editor.

    Title Page

    The title page should include:
    - The name(s) of the author(s)
    - A concise and informative title
    - The affiliation(s) and address(es) of the author(s)
    - The e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers of the corresponding author


    Please provide an abstract of 150 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.


    Manuscripts can be submitted either in German or in English. Each paper must be preceded by a title and an abstract in English and in German

    Text Formatting

    Manuscripts should be submitted in Word.
    - Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 10-point Times Roman) for text.
    - Use italics for emphasis.
    - Use the automatic page numbering function to number the pages.
    - Do not use field functions.
    - Use tab stops or other commands for indents, not the space bar.
    - Use the table function, not spreadsheets, to make tables.
    - Use the equation editor or MathType for equations.
    - Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions).

    Manuscripts with mathematical content can also be submitted in LaTeX.
    - LaTeX macro package (zip, 182 kB)


    Please use the decimal system of headings with no more than three levels.


    Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter.


    Footnotes can be used to give additional information, which may include the citation of a reference included in the reference list. They should not consist solely of a reference citation, and they should never include the bibliographic details of a reference. They should also not contain any figures or tables.
    Footnotes to the text are numbered consecutively; those to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data). Footnotes to the title or the authors of the article are not given reference symbols.
    Always use footnotes instead of endnotes.


    Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the reference list. The names of funding organizations should be written in full.


    Reference citations in the text should be identified by numbers in square brackets. Some examples:
    1. Negotiation research spans many disciplines [3].
    2. This result was later contradicted by Becker and Seligman [5].
    3. This effect has been widely studied [1-3, 7].

    Reference list

    The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.
    The entries in the list should be numbered consecutively.

    Ideally, the names of all authors should be provided, but the usage of “et al” in long author lists will also be accepted:

    For authors using EndNote, Springer provides an output style that supports the formatting of in-text citations and reference list.

    Authors preparing their manuscript in LaTeX can use the bibtex file spbasic.bst which is included in Springer’s LaTeX macro package.


    All tables are to be numbered using Arabic numerals.
    Tables should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order.
    For each table, please supply a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table.
    Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption.
    Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body.
